NC State super-fan gets exposure on "Jimmy Kimmel Live"

Bookmark and Share

"Jimmy Kimmel Live" made a huge move this week, getting a network promotion from the 12:05 a.m. slot to 11:35 p.m. -- right alongside the big late night players David Letterman and Jay Leno. And on Kimmel's first 11:35 show, which aired on Tuesday night, an N.C. State super-fan got major exposure during the opening monologue.

For a joke about ESPN announcer Brent Musburger's over-the-top admiration of Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron's girlfriend (Katherine Webb), Kimmel replayed a clip from Monday night's game. Except instead of showing the reigning Miss Alabama while Musburger raved, the clip showed a topless Jake Robinson hanging onto a pole and enthusiastically twirling his t-shirt in the stands at an N.C. State vs. Florida State football game. You may know Jake better from his 15 minutes of internet fame this fall as "shirtless fat guy."

Here's the clip from Kimmel.
